UK Limited Company for Non-Residents

If you are a non-UK resident who wants to set up a UK limited company, you have come to the right place. But wait a minute! Is there anything you have to do differently than a UK resident to form a company in the UK? Well, absolutely not! All you need is to appoint a director and a shareholder (Fun fact: You can be both). You do not even have to live in the UK to register a company in the UK or become a company director, shareholder, or secretary. 

However, just like a UK resident, you also need to register a UK limited company with Companies House (an agency based in the UK that incorporates and dissolves limited companies, registering company information and making it public). You also need an official address for your UK-based company (We can provide that). Corporations must be registered in one of the UK jurisdictions, but they can have their headquarters anywhere in the world and trade in the UK or abroad. 

All of this can seem daunting but do not fret, because Affotax is ready to take the burden off your shoulders and help you set up a UK Limited Company For Non Residents. Check out our package and its benefits for setting up a UK limited company for non-UK residents – get a quote now!

1. Can a non resident open a company in UK?  

Yes, it is possible for a non-resident to open a company in the UK. If you are planning to set up a UK limited company, you are in the right place, check out our package and benefits of our service and let us help you form a UK limited company along with a registered office address.  

2. Can I have a limited company in the UK and live abroad?  

Yes, you can have a limited company in the UK and still live abroad, however, some legal requirements must be met:

  • The company must be registered and incorporated in the UK.
  • UK accounting and reporting standards must be followed by the company.
  • The company must have a registered office address in the UK
  • Directors must still file annual returns and maintain legal records.

3. Do non-UK residents need a UK bank account? 

Although it is not a requirement for you to have a UK bank account, it can be helpful to process your transactions easily without any additional fees. To open a bank account in the UK requires residency rights and a home address in the UK, separate from your registered UK office address. 

4. How much does it cost to register a company in the UK as a non-resident? 

The UK incorporation filing fee is £12, which is included in our package. We provide other benefits like a registered office address and much more with the package. Do not miss the opportunity of forming a UK company at the best and most affordable price.

6. Are limited companies automatically registered for VAT?  

No, limited companies are not automatically registered for VAT, in fact, you must do it independently on your own. But don't worry! Our package includes VAT registration along with all the necessary benefits that you are seeking in the formation of a UK limited company.

7. How long will it take to register a company in the UK?
